WINNSBORO We could NOT have scripted it any better than the way it naturally played out last Saturday night [June 30, 2012], in front of a moderate crowd at Crossroads Music Company & Listening Room in Winnsboro, Texas. OK, East Texas, just a heads-up on the fact that Crossroads is doing its part to keep QUALITY LIVE MUSIC aLIVE in East Texas, and we'd like to thank you in advance for your support of all these top-notch performers spending some of their minutes on our stage! This grouping was extra special, and I feel the need to share some of the accolades they possess:
